Pool Covers 101: Safety & Pool Protection

As Raleigh’s hot summer climate transitions to crisp, cooler temperatures, it’s time to put away the pool toys and start thinking about how to protect your swimming pool through the fall and winter. At Rising Sun Pools, we have your solution: Industry-leading pool covers designed to protect your pool and your family’s safety.

Winter Pool Covers vs. Safety Pool Covers

Paired with a proper winterization program, your pool cover will protect your pool from harsh winter weather, cut down on cleaning and maintenance time and help to extend the lifespan of your pool. But it’s not just about pool protection — it’s also about safety.

There are two kinds of pool covers: Winter pool covers and safety pool covers. At Rising Sun, we carry both. How do you know which is right for your needs? Winter pool covers typically feature a lower price point and durable, weatherproof material — but if you have pets or children, you’ll probably want to consider a safety cover. With superior strength and puncture-resistance, safety pool covers provide additional peace of mind.

Safety covers meet high performance standards for strength, durability and weight bearing — meaning that you can feel confident knowing your loved ones are safe.
